If you are interested in leading volunteers, learning about restoration and taking your volunteering to the next level then join us for Green Kirkland New Steward Orientation!
Join Green Kirkland staff in the Fall of 2019, to learn about becoming a Green Kirkland Steward. The Orientation is free, open to the public. Materials and light refreshments will be provided.
No commitment is required to attend this orientation, simply an interest in learning more!
This training has been re-scheduled to Fall of 2019 - date will be a Saturday in Late September/Early October.
All attendees are asked to please register advance.
What is a Green Kirkland Steward?
Green Kirkland Stewards are trained volunteers who take a leadership role in the restoration activities of a City-owned natural area park. These volunteers are given the training and support needed to lead their own volunteer events and to conduct ongoing restoration events.
Green Kirkland Stewards have different backgrounds, but are united by a desire to get themselves and their communities involved in stewardship of urban forests and other natural areas. Stewards give time to their parks as their lives allow with some hosting events weekly and many hosting events monthly or every two months.
What will we learn at Orientation?
Attendees will spend the morning learning about the Green Cities Program, the Green Kirkland Steward Program, 20 Year Natural Areas Plan and the basic ideas behind environmental restoration, urban forestry and community based stewardship. The group will also head outside to get hands-on training in leading volunteers and removing invasive plants that threaten our public forests and private land.
What happens after Orientation?
Once the orientation is completed, attendees will have the option to apply to be a volunteer Green Kirkland Steward. This includes selecting a park and further training with Green Kirkland staff.
Those interested in continuing in the Steward program are asked to attend additional Steward Fields Skills training days.
Dates will be posted in May 2019.
